Hello, my name is Anika Lacerte. I am an artist and maker. I believe we were made to be creative and our stories matter.

Everyday I draw and share. I’ve been drawing every day since January 2016. You can follow my drawings with the hashtag #anikadrawsdaily.

I started drawing before I went to bed at night, in a small sketchbook. I maintained this habit by setting the bar really low: drawing five minutes a day. I am currently drawing closer to 30-45 minutes per day, but I think setting the bar low initially was crucial to maintaining this habit.

In Spring 2017 I bought an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and the Procreate app and have been drawing digitally every day since. I now draw first thing in the morning, setting my alarm before my kids wake up, which means I have the rest of the day to catch up if I am not able to finish a drawing first thing.

Sometimes I turn the drawings into wall art printables you can collect. I also make printables to inspire your creativity and story-telling, like my DIY calendars, my Conversation Starters, my journal writing prompt mini books, and my popular Advent Art Journal.

I live in Sooke, BC, Canada.
